Research activities

My research interests over the past 5 years have included concurrent disorders (mechanisms and treatment), nicotine dependence, problem gambling, epidemiology of mental disorders, and prevention of addicitive disorders in youth. As Director of Mental Health Information, Evaluation & Research in Alberta Health Services (Calgary Zone), my interests of late have shifted towards mental health services research including system-level preformance measurement and studies of the treated prevalence of mental disorders. I continue to supervise research projects of graduate students, undergraduate students, and psychiatry residents. I occasionally teach undergraduate courses (clinical psychology, health psychology, and statistics) at the University of Calgary.
